I don't normally do requests, but while coming along the ridge from Banoge to Knockmulanane I took this photo of ,from the left, Beenatoor, Coumbaun, Beenoskee and Stradbally Mountain.In the foreground is Loch Thuairin Mharta and it's smaller companion(no name I'm afraid).
The valley below has several old tracks along it (many almost disappearing) and a scattering of stone sheep pens.The ground was fairly good even after heavy rain with just a few boggy parts. There is a track that rises from the carpark above Anascaul (at Lough Anascaul - Q583 052 C) to the level of this largely flat, isolated plateau at about 400mtrs.
